Being a 3rd year at NESL… I would say it depends… If you are looking to do well 1st year and are looking to transfer up, I would say go to NESL. If you are content with Suffolk then I say go that direction. Staying local within Massachusetts both NESL and Suffolk have comparable reputations but Suffolk has a greater alumni base to make connections and thereby increasing job prospects. Hope that helps!
Good Information. Too many of you people on this board are always trashing schools, but with very little evidence to back it up. Just because a school is a tier 4 does not mean it is necessarily a bad school with bad job prospects. FCSL, yeah maybe. Cooley, OK. But, the way people trash schools on here, because they are not in the top 100 or t-14 even, immediately and destroy them for absolutely no reason.
"Oh _____ is a tier 4, dont go!"
"Oh _____ is a tier 3, so it must be better than a tier 4!"
Many of you are delusional and think people are just going to school to make $$. Money is not everything.
I have no earthly idea what either of these schools are ranked, but I have strong Boston ties and know tons of Suffolk lawyers with good jobs. I know it's a VERY regional school where a job is far from a sure thing, but I've sincerley never met a NESL lawyer. Obviously this is anecdotal, but it comes from a large sample size, and many anecdotes.
I hear ya, I'm sure they are out there lmao. Just because two people on a message board haven't met them, doesn't mean they do not exist.
